How to win business awards: when good isn’t good enoughMarch 11, 2020
I’ve been writing awards submissions for businesses for around two decades; for clients who have a great story to tell but no time to tell it, and those who may have the time but don’t know where to start, or how to correctly collate and present the information.
While myself and my team of specialist award writers are busy writing awards (and helping lots of clients to win them!), I also delivering training to help business owners and communications professionals to put together their own award submissions too.
But what if neither of these solutions are right for you?
Now, for a small investment of just £7.99, you can buy ‘Glory: The magic formula for winning more business awards’ and access the secret formula for writing company award submissions that increase your chance of success.
